My daughter, Erin, comes down for a visit from CT and brings over 150 used albums. Unfortunately she found them vinyl against vinyl out of their cardboard jackets, most ruined.
I did manager to salvage a few treasures like:
Bernstein plays Brubeck plays Bernstein from 1959 that sounds pretty decent but slighly warped.
Mine is a 1961 mono version that is still pretty nice. I loved the liner note:
THIS MONOPHONIC MICROGROOVE RECORDING IS PLAYABLE ON MONOPHONIC AND STEREO PHONOGRAPHS. IT CANNOT BECOME OBSOLETE! IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE A SOURCE OF OUTSTANDING SOUND REPORDUCTION, PROVIDING THE FINEST MONOPHONIC PERFORMANCE FROM ANY PHONOGRAPH.
I think they mean if the owner would take reasonable care and PUT IT BACK IN THE RECORD SLEEVE! I love: It cannot become obsolete. See, Michael Fremmer was and is right!!!!!
I also kept, but in marginal condition some Neil Young: Evrybody Knows This Is Nowhere; and After The Gold Rush. It will take some major work to get much of the Rice Krispies out of these, but I am going to try.
Also found "The further Adventures Of El Chico on Impulse (mono). Fold out jacket with some great info. This is in good condition. Featuring Gabor Szabo, Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Charlie Mariano, and Jerome Rishardson. Recorded in 1966 by Rudy Van Gelder.
If my daughter's in-laws had just put these records back in their jackets there were some great finds here. Most were just ruined.
